The forgotten Prince by Monika Mangal 4.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 12 minutes ago

A riveting novel set in ancient Egypt's early nineteenth dynasty At the beginning of King Seti's third regnal year, the aspiring architect in the making Siamun sets out from his hometown Iunu in order to join the royal architects. In doing so, he hopes to make the most of his exceptional talent and the knowledge he has acquired during his studies in the temple of Ra. While Siamun pretends to be the son of a lesser architect, he anxiously guards the secret of his true parentage which must never be unravelled. Sooner than expected, his dream of working on one of the ambitious royal building projects comes true. Quite by chance, the king's attention is drawn to the gifted young man. Intrigued by his brilliant ideas, Seti subsequently entrusts him with the construction of his two dearest monuments, oblivious of the potential threat Siamun poses to him. However, Siamun's sudden rise is not without its downsides. Powerful individuals who envy his extraordinary success leave no stone unturned to ensure his fall from grace. Soon, devious scheming and even plots of murder follow his every step. Despite all this, Siamun carries on carving pharaoh's grand visions into stone without wavering - until the day he discovers the unspeakable outrage hidden, of all places, inside the very temple he has been building with so much devotion. From then on, nothing is as it used to be, and Siamun faces a hard decision. Inexorably, dramatic events begin to unfold...

Intermittent Fasting & Keto After 50: This Book Includes 2 Manuscripts: Two Complete Guides to Restart Metabolism and Boost Energy, for Women and Men ... by Michelle Clarity 4.3 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Are you Looking For a Healthy Solution to Reset your Metabolism and Lose Weight? If yes, then keep reading... • INTERMITTENT FASTING After 50 For many centuries, people have fasted. Often, fasting was done because there was no food available to consume "Fasting is a standard process, as the body can handle extended periods of time without eating anything." So, you can consider intermittent fasting to be an essential process for regulating your body weight and health simultaneously. With fewer meals, you have a better chance of living a HEALTHY life. In addition, when you don't have to prepare extra dishes every day (because you are skipping meals), you can save money and a lot of time, for other activities. • KETO After 50 The Ketogenic diet, is a dietary protocol that expects you to focus on increasing your fat intake and eliminating or reducing the carb intake. This will push your body to a certain metabolic state known as ketosis. The moment your body enters into the ketosis state, it converts the stored fat to fuel and burns it to provide energy to your cells "A Ketogenic diet provides your body with premium fuel, which is fat, and it makes you feel fitter, stronger, and younger." The Ketogenic diet is a remedy for a number of diseases, and that in itself qualifies an individual with the ailments in question to adapt to the diet. This book covers the following topics: • Differences Between Intermittent Fasting and Keto Diet; • The Need of Intermittent Fasting & Keto for Women Over 50; • The Need of Intermittent Fasting & Keto for Men Over 50; • The ALL Methods [101+5:2+16/8]; • Is The Intermittent Fasting For Everyone? • Foods to Enjoy / Avoid; • Health Benefits of the Ketogenic Diet; • Most Common Keto & Intermittent Diet Mistakes You Should Know; • Fitness and Exercise: How to Lose Weight and Alleviate the Symptoms of Menopause; • 2 x Weekly Meal Plans; ...

Lost in the Crowd by M.J. Santley 4.5 Stars (22 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

M.J. Santley is a man whose problems stem half from unlucky twists of fate and half from his own truly, intensely, absurdly inexplicable knack for wandering into trouble. In this, his first novel, he travels the world in search of love, the meaning of life, and his drunk and disorderly brother. Lost in the Crowd is an engaging, humorous, and sometimes poignant autobiographical story that will have you feeling as though you are right there with the author - laughing, crying, and stumbling through all the ups and downs of his amazing, hard-to-believe, often hilarious, crazy, heartwarming journey through life - a journey that recurrently seems to be influenced by mysterious forces beyond his control and understanding. The book is defined by events that occurred in the author's life during the two years it was being written. These events bring the book to life and give it a whole new meaning - a meaning that could never have been envisaged when the writing started in October 2015. It has been described as a brilliantly compelling quirky book of inspiration, coincidence, love, luck, loss, life, chance, opportunism, emotion, comedy, stupidity, amazement, danger, worry, survival, happiness, laughter, and WTF!

Black Lives and Spatial Matters: Policing Blackness and Practicing Freedom in Suburban St. Louis (Police/Worlds: Studies in Security, Crime, and ... by Jodi Rios (Cornell University Press) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Black Lives and Spatial Matters is a call to reconsider the epistemic violence that is committed when scholars, policymakers, and the general public continue to frame Black precarity as just another racial, cultural, or ethnic conflict that can be solved solely through legal, political, or economic means. Jodi Rios argues that the historical and material production of blackness-as-risk is foundational to the historical and material construction of our society and certainly foundational to the construction and experience of metropolitan space. She also considers how an ethics of lived blackness -- living fully and visibly in the face of forces intended to dehumanize and erase -- can create a powerful counter point to blackness-as-risk. Using a transdisciplinary methodology, Black Lives and Spatial Matters studies cultural, institutional, and spatial politics of race in North St. Louis County, Missouri, as a set of practices that are intimately connected to each other and to global histories of race and race-making. As such, the book adds important insight into the racialization of metropolitan space and people in the United States. The arguments presented in this book draw from fifteen years of engaged research in North St. Louis County and rely on multiple disciplinary perspectives and local knowledge in order to study relationships between interconnected practices and phenomena.

The Conquest of Canada (Vol. 1&2): Complete Edition by George Warburton (e-artnow) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 2 hours ago

"The Conquest of Canada" in 2 volumes is one of the best-known works by George Warburton that features the beginning of the European interest in the northern parts of the American continent. Starting in the late 15th century, French and British expeditions explored, colonized, and fought over various places within North America in what constitutes present-day Canada. The colony of New France was claimed in 1534 with permanent settlements beginning in 1608. Although the English had laid claims to it in 1497 when John Cabot made landfall somewhere on the North American coast and had claimed the land for England on behalf of Henry VII these claims were not exercised and England did not attempt to create a permanent colony. As for the French, however, Jacques Cartier planted a cross in the Gaspé Peninsula in 1534 and claimed the land in the name of Francis I, creating a region called "Canada" the following summer. This carefully crafted e-artnow ebook is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

Why Can't Johnny Just Quit?: A Common Sense Guide to Understanding Addiction by Kyle Oh 4.5 Stars (71 Reviews)    Price verified 7 hours ago

Amazon Best-seller in Books on Drug Addiction A common sense guide to understanding addiction, and how to win the war on drugs. "A fascinating, realistic study of pain management and addiction that offers hope to patients and their families." ~Kirkus Reviews FULL KIRKUS REVIEW: "A physiatrist and pain management specialist analyzes the intricacies of addiction and pain. In his pain management business, Dr. Oh is vigilant about watching for red flags -- signs that a patient may be abusing or becoming addicted to a prescribed medication. He begins his analysis of drug dependence by discussing 10 myths and misconceptions about addiction, citing the misleading and oft-depicted image of an addict in movies or TV, as if the person who is high always "looks inebriated, intoxicated, and half falling asleep." Oh explains that for most people, the effect of opiates is sedation, though addicts described their initial reactions as "stimulating and energizing." Oh downplays the idea of an "addictive personality," feeling that it unfairly blames the victim. "The only thing that predicts whether a person is susceptible to a drug or not is one's genetics," he says. "The only way you will know whether you are susceptible to a drug is by the way the drug makes you feel." Oh explains that it is that initial euphoria that the addict chases -- losing jobs, forsaking health, friends and family on the way. Though doctors are aware of the possibility that their patients will become addicted to their pain medications, Oh believes that many doctors choose not to see the signs of addiction. "For most physicians... it is easier to give into the patient's demand and give him what he wants rather than trying to delve too deep underneath the surface." The author does a fine job explaining the complex aspects of how the chemistry of the brain is affected by various drugs, including a description of the five known opiate receptors in the brain and the three classes of opiate pain medication. ...

Some Far Elusive Dawn by Elizabeth Darrell (Lume Books) 4.6 Stars (20 Reviews)    Price verified 17 hours ago

Amid the strict social conventions of 1920s Singapore, four young people struggle to rise from the chaos of the Great War... Alex Beresford, the unwilling heir to a shipping-line had been prevented from fighting by his family and is suffocated by his overbearing and suspicious parents. Now he burns with the fire of rebellion and seeks any challenge that will bring him the excitement and danger he missed. None of the prim society girls in Singapore are of interest to him and as well as being bored, he is lonely and sees no way out from the duties forced upon him. Martin Linwood, scarred by the physical and mental wounds of war, is a man who had done all the things Alex would give his soul to experience. He faces an uncertain future terrified by his sense of isolation until Lydia, Alex's over-protected young sister, suddenly finds herself drawn to him. And into their lives comes Dorothea du Lessier, the daughter of a risqué novelist and Alex's 'kissing cousin'. Affectionately known as Thea, she causes huge strain in the Beresford household and shocks the island's society-ladies with her forward and liberated ways. But one member of the Beresford family is dangerously enchanted by her... Brimming with passion, colour and the heat of the tropics, Some Far Elusive Dawn brilliantly portrays the entwining of four lives as a new generation fights to emerge from the shadow of war.

The Long Escape by Jeff Noonan (Create Space) 4.2 Stars (75 Reviews)    Price verified 24 hours ago

The Long Escape By Jeff Noonan This is a true story; a story of survival. It tells of how a boy and his family lived a life of hellish abuse, fought back, and learned to live with the memories. It is also an adventure tale, following the boy through the military buildup to the Viet Nam War, Pacific Island love affairs, and his personal battles in the Montana mountains. As a boy, Jeff was raised in the mountains of Montana where he idolized his father, a former professional boxer. But in the early 1950s, his idol became an alcoholic and an abuser, repeatedly beating Jeff, his mother, and his younger siblings. In desperation, Jeff resorted to digging hidden bunkers where the family could hide when they were attacked. Life became a daily struggle, both physically and financially. He left school and worked wherever he could find a job, using the money to help feed his family. He labored in lumber mills, railroads, and ranches until he joined the military at age seventeen. This story follows the boy from the hell of his childhood through Pacific Island love affairs, killer typhoons, and Hong Kong bar battles as he fights his way to acceptance in the rough and tumble world of a destroyer sailor. In his first Navy assignment, he finds that his poor education has resulted in a job he despises; working as a permanent head cleaner on an old destroyer. But through perseverance, hard work, and an iron will, he becomes a leader, supervising teams working on experimental shipboard missile guidance systems. But you can't run from yourself. Jeff's family problems haunt him, frequently bringing him back to Montana; to increasingly violent confrontations with his father. Tensions build until the inevitable happens and Jeff is drawn into a final, epic, battle with the abuser. A sobering, visceral, and shockingly real portrait of domestic violence, the boy's relentless drive for survival is nothing short of extraordinary. An uplifting journey to redemption and self-acceptance, ...

Reginald McKenna: Financier among Statesmen, 1863–1916 (British Politics and Society) by Martin Farr (Routledge) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Reginald McKenna has never been the subject of scholarly attention. This was partly due to his own preference for appearing at the periphery of events even when ostensibly at the centre, and the absence of a significant collection of private papers. This new book redresses the neglect of this major statesmen and financier partly through the natural advance of historical research, and partly by the discoveries of missing archival material. McKenna's role is now illuminated by his own reflections, and by the correspondence of friends and colleagues, including Asquith, Churchill, Keynes, Baldwin, Bonar Law, MacDonald, and Chamberlain. McKenna's presence at the hub of political life in the first half of the century is now clear: in the radical Liberal governments of 1905-16, where he acted as a lightning conductor for the party; during the war, where he served as the Prime Minister's deputy and the principal voice for restraint in the conduct of the war; and as chairman of the world's largest bank, where until his death in office aged eighty, he prompted progressive policies to deal with the issues of war debt, trade, mass unemployment, and the return to gold.

Bedtime Stories for Adults – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia: Relaxing Lullabies and Daily Exercises Based on Cbt Techniques to Help you ... by Kirsten Wallace 5.0 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Are you experiencing trouble sleeping well at night or staying asleep? Do you wake up throughout the night and feel restless in the morning? Sleep is something that everyone should consider more than normal. Most adults today at best have an average of six or seven. When you lose sleep, your body automatically starts looking for additional calories to make up for sleep and give your body sufficient energy to get through the day. Lack of sleep also regulates the body's quantity of fat and how your appetite functions. Your sleep pattern will have full control over your eating schedule, so if you want to lose weight, it is important that you have enough rest. No lunch try to choose protein every morning and any fruit you can even sprout during your morning travel will be enough. Health sleep disorders are becoming more prevalent. The use of drugs can cause side effects that lead to poor sleep. And older people suffer from more sleeping medical and mental conditions. The good news is that all of these sleep problems can be handled effectively. Good sleep at any age is possible. The key is to understand the changes in our sleep as we grow old and then get to the root cause of problems. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a well-known evidence-based treatment used for anxiety and depression. It's been around for almost five decades now so there's a huge chance that you've already heard about it. Aside from the conditions mentioned, CBT is also used for the treatment of chronic pain, as well as a host of other emotional and mental ailments. Use bedtime stories to fall asleep and help your mind relax. Enjoy and have a nice rest!

In Toward a Theory of Peace, completed in 1997 and published for the first time here, she delves into a vast literature in psychology, anthropology, archeology, sociology, and history to examine the ways in which changing moral beliefs came to stigmatize forms of "socially sanctioned violence" such as human sacrifice, cannibalism, and slavery, eventually rendering them unacceptable. Could the same process work for war? Edited and with an introduction by political scientists Matthew Evangelista (Cornell University) and Neta C.

Bosko & Admira: A Balkan History and a True Story of Love, Murder and Betrayal in Under-Siege Sarajevo by Paul Harris (Amber Publications) Price verified one day ago

At the core of this story is a tragic and familiar tale; a love story that begins with hope and ends in tragedy; a love that becomes the inevitable victim of endless Balkan violence; a story that makes no sense at all. To attempt to make sense of it is to explore the tumultuous history of this blood-soaked corner of Europe; the historical events that influenced future conflict; that drove friends and neighbours to commit murder against one another in the 1990s; a history that brutally divided communities and eventually led to the deaths of two young lovers symbolising the destruction of an entire nation.

"A courageous, emotionally charged, fast paced, gripping tale... A stirring testament to the strength of the human spirit and the power of music." It is the winter of 1942, and the world is at war. A few Jewish musicians attempt to flee the Nazi death grip, each desperately trying to navigate his own path to safety. With the courageous aid and kindness of strangers, they soon find themselves in Rome, where under the highly secret help of the Vatican, they are hidden in Bellafortuna, a small village in Sicily. The residents of Bellafortuna welcome them and care for them, and for a fleeting moment, the horrors the musicians are facing are forgotten while residing in the beautiful, idyllic landscape of Sicily. But word soon reaches the small village that Italy has surrendered, now making Germany at war with Italy. War quickly comes to the village as the Germans storm into Sicily to repel the Allied advance. As Bellafortuna becomes front and center in the raging war, the villagers rise as one to try and protect and save the Jews hiding in their midst. Failure to keep them hidden will mean death to those under their protection... and perhaps even to the villagers themselves. An intricately plotted and meticulously researched novel, Saving the Music demonstrates how, in the face of death and unspeakable horror, the strength of the human spirit of ordinary people can shine bright through the darkness.

The Devil's Day Job (Afterlife Industries Book 1) by Logan Atlas 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Hilariously irreverent and disrespectful, The Devil's Day Job is a divine comedy starring Jesus, GOD, and Lucifer like you've never seen them before. In the modern world, Lucifer has issues. If you think you've got a complex, imagine living for eons with "the devil" as your cuddliest designation. All the while your brother, the savior of man, and GOD's favored son (as is written) wins the family's fantasy football league every year. That'll give you a GODdamned complex. It isn't all bad, though. Going by "Luck" in the modern era, the devil still meets up with his only begotten brother for weekly coffee. With centuries of therapy under his belt and a bewitching love interest entering the scene, afterlife was finally looking up for Old Scratch. The devil always gets his due. And so it came to pass that the immortals, Adam and Eve, begat yet another garden variety, world-ending scheme against Afterlife Industries. The duo that brought you the original victim complex teams up with a like-minded politician with a penchant for building walls to herald the end of Heaven, Hell, and Monotheism. Afterlife Industries: The Devil's Day Job bestows readers with a hilariously satirical account of life after death. Lucifer's struggles, GOD's neglect, and Jesus' perfection will keep you laughing, but for your own safety - please do not bring this book in contact with a bible, holy water, or religious relatives. ***Disclaimer: this book is offensive and sacrilegious.

ENGLAND'S RISE and DECLINE: And What It Means, Today by Jon Lee Junior 3.9 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

"The read that exposes 'political correctness' for the fraud we suspected it to be." 'England's Rise and Decline' first reminds us what it was that once made Britain's economy the world's super-leader. It then explains how England consolidated her position globally, in particular through her 'special relationship' with America. Her decline, meanwhile, is seen as a result of the 'Victorian hypocrisy' of the town-based, college-educated professional. That same middle-class sanctimony is the root of today's ultra-liberal 'p.c.' movements. Instructively detailed in its history, yet breathtakingly sweeping in its strategic scope, the book is always startling, original and interesting - even if you don't agree with its clearly explained viewpoints. A fun and readable - but gritty - work of history and political theory for the age of Trump and Farage. Not a book for Ivory Tower socialists or for fans of Tony Blair.

Reading a book about an individual's journey with a terminal bowel cancer diagnosis would ordinarily seem to be a rather depressing read. However, Kerry's light-hearted sense of humour and unending positivity and love of life shines through in her writing. In this very personal book, Kerry overcomes the stigma of talking openly about the symptoms and treatments for bowel cancer: there are graphic descriptions of some of the intimate details of bodily (mal)functions; reflections on her research into what may have contributed to her diagnosis and nutritional and other lifestyle changes she has found helpful. Kerry shares how she has made sense of her situation and developed coping strategies, in the hope of helping others. The insights gained from this book will be valuable for a broad range of readers: patients with bowel cancer, wanting to learn more about other patients' experiences; families and friends of bowel cancer patients (who perhaps feel uncomfortable asking those difficult questions); healthcare professionals who want a deeper understanding of their patients' emotional, as well as physical needs; researchers exploring the lived experiences of bowel cancer patients and writers investigating comparative healthcare provision for cancer patients. Kerry's book is an inspiring and readable story, written from the heart.

Scraps: My Patchwork Thoughts Over the Years by Tammy Valerio 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

There are obviously things that middle-age women don't discuss in daylight, unless they have two chardonnays under their belt. Newcomer author Tammy Valerio tells the truth in a variety of essays written throughout a period of 10 years. Her most important piece of advice is that women must be ready for change. All those wonderful body parts that were high, perky and tight are now falling towards the floor. The eyelids droop like wilted flowers in the rain; the high cheekbones have begun to sag. The tight bottom resembles a lumpy pancake spreading on a hot grill. The tummy needs panties with spandex (lots of spandex). The thighs begin to rub together when you walk to the mailbox. The ankles still look good, but the skin looks like a cheese-and-strawberry breakfast crepe. The toes that were long and straight begin to go in different directions. This eBook is for baby-boomers approaching the final chapters, where Ms. Valerio invites them to join the parade and put on a happy face.

Led Zeppelin: How, Why and Where it all Began (The Origin of the Species Book 2) by Alan Clayson (Lume Books) 4.5 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

"I noticed a couple of hairy blokes at the bar, watching the drummer intently. One was a local singer, Robert Plant, and the other was none other than Jimmy Page. Something was cooking... " Martin Hone, Birmingham club proprietor Led Zeppelin almost single-handedly invented the concept of the rock band. Their innovative recordings, incendiary live performances and vast record deals are the stuff of legend, as is the off-stage debauchery and excess that surrounded them. Driven by the creativity and vision of guitarist and producer Jimmy Page, and employing some judicious plundering and reworking of American blues and British folk, they became arguably the most important rock act of all time. But before the huge success of Zeppelin, the future band members were already making enormous contributions to 60s British pop. Page had been playing professionally since his early teens and had become a sought-after London session musician, often working in the same studio as future bandmate John Paul Jones, while singer Robert Plant and drummer John Bonham were stalwarts of the vibrant music scene in the British Midlands. In Led Zeppelin: the Origin of the Species, music historian and author Alan Clayson has documented every session, live appearance and recording made by the future members of Led Zeppelin and has woven the results into a complex, insightful and revelatory narrative. Noted rock critic and author Alan Clayson has written many books on music - including the best-sellers Backbeat, subject of a major film, an authorised biography of The Yardbirds and the only English-language life of Jacques Brel. He has written for journals as diverse as The Guardian, Record Collector, Folk Roots,!, The Times, The Independent, and, as a teenager, the notorious Schoolkids Oz. He is also an acclaimed songwriter and performance artist, both solo and fronting the legendary Clayson and the Argonouts.

Synopsis on Da Vinci’s ‘31’ re: Dresden Codex by L. A. Braun 3.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Does the 'Dresden Codex' contain secrets in its artwork? Yes. This peculiar astronomy manual regarding Venus, with its colorful caricatures of warriors mutating into dragons and trees (while mixing alchemical potions and traveling on journeys), had contained secrets that delight and stump the very elite of the world's craftiest codebreakers. This picture-based book is a synopsis of evidence that we have amassed in regard to the meaning of a number '31' that we had found hidden in Leonardo Da Vinci's work. With that number in hand, we explore the secrets of the Transformation Process of turning Mercury to Gold inside of the Philosophers' Stone alchemy texts through their rebus picture words. We then search for parallel evidence within the 'Dresden Codex.' This book examines how the hidden number '31' is embedded in not only the 'Dresden Codex,' but is widespread in science and geometry. Had there really been rebus picture word puzzles pointing to the number '31' in the artwork of the 'Dresden Codex'? Step aboard the enchanted mystery ship for a journey through the basics of the 'Dresden Codex'--a famous Maya writing which no one has ever been able to fully crack. The author provides a tight evidentiary argument for the 'Dresden Codex' being a version of the Philosophers' Stone genre of texts. Utilizing an extravaganza of vibrant illustrations from history's most eminent artists, this book first highlights the fine points of the 'Dresden Codex's fundamentals and then moves on to acquaint the readers with the history and overall canons of the Philosophers' Stone. The readers embark upon a tour through widely varying perspectives on the 'Dresden Codex' -- as a fine example of Mesoamerican art. Readers will then learn the intricacies of the Art of alchemy, but what is even more important--by carefully piecing together the scattered clues, they will be brought nearer to the closely guarded message hidden deep inside the deliberately obscured texts.

Backstage Passes: Life on the Wild Side with David Bowie by Angela Bowie (Lume Books) 3.9 Stars (77 Reviews)    Price verified 3 minutes ago

There are countless books about the great rock/pop icon of the twentieth century, David Bowie. But only one written by the woman who met him aged just nineteen, married him, had a child with him and helped shape his image and the early stages of his career. In one of the great rock'n'roll exposés, Angela Mary Hartnett Bowie gives a riveting account of her years with Bowie and his progress from aspiring young singer to international rock stardom. She emerges as a witty, powerful personality in her own right, and as his partner of ten years has insights into his background and personality that are exclusively hers. American, educated in Cyprus, Switzerland, the US and then London, Angie brought her confidence and sophistication to the young David's life and is credited with conceptualizing the costumes for the Ziggy Stardust stage show, which was his breakthrough to success. This is a fascinating glimpse into the music and club scene of early seventies London, and later the rock lifestyle in New York and Los Angeles. Angie knew everyone and gives a colorful, wry account of the ambience, and her brushes with other giants of the decade - Jagger, Elton John, Lou Reed, the Jacksons and members of Led Zeppelin, to name just a few. Her story gives a unique take on life with the inscrutable Bowie and she recounts the dissolution of their marriage, and his descent into cocaine addiction, with courage and charm. Praise for Backstage passes: 'Neither coy nor restrained, and freed of a time-limited divorce-settlement clause that forbade her to discuss her marriage, the former Mrs. David Bowie describes in no uncertain terms the torrid "open marriage'' she shared with the singer known as the Thin White Duke.

Racism in America: A Reader by Harvard University Press 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Racism in America has been the subject of serious scholarship for decades. At Harvard University Press, we've had the honor of publishing some of the most influential books on the subject. The excerpts in this volume -- culled from works of history, law, sociology, medicine, economics, critical theory, philosophy, art, and literature -- are an invitation to understand anti-Black racism through the eyes of our most incisive commentators. Readers will find such classic selections as Toni Morrison's description of the Africanist presence in the White American literary imagination, Walter Johnson's depiction of the nation's largest slave market, and Stuart Hall's theorization of the relationship between race and nationhood. More recent voices include Khalil Gibran Muhammad on the pernicious myth of Black criminality, Elizabeth Hinton on the link between mass incarceration and 1960s social welfare programs, Anthony Abraham Jack on how elite institutions continue to fail first-generation college students, Mehrsa Baradaran on the racial wealth gap, Nicole Fleetwood on carceral art, and Joshua Bennett on the anti-Black bias implicit in how we talk about animals and the environment. Because the experiences of non-White people are integral to the history of racism and often bound up in the story of Black Americans, we have included writers who focus on the struggles of Native Americans, Latinos, and Asians as well. Racism in America is for all curious readers, teachers, and students who wish to discover for themselves the complex and rewarding intellectual work that has sustained our national conversation on race and will continue to guide us in future years.

Atom between Science and Politics: From Los Alamos to Hiroshima by Ozias Marcovici 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

A few personal reflectionsWe can complain because rosebushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses. (Abraham Lincoln) Atomic science perfectly illustrates Lincoln's multiperspective thinking. We may look at the atomic arsenal accumulated so far with reluctance and fear, but on the other hand we enjoy the enormous advantages provided by the peaceful use of nuclear energy and the development of new technologies, both on Earth and in space. At the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth, in parallel with theoretical physics, which was gaining more and more ground, a new branch of modern physics was born: nuclear physics, whose first steps in search of a host of unanswered questions were rather hesitant. This new branch provided researchers with a unique opportunity for professional success, as the race for unraveling the secrets of the atom was just beginning. Many of these young, talented physicists earned worldwide glory: Pierre and Marie Curie, Irene and Frederic Joliot-Curie, Ernest Rutherford, James Chadwick, Max Born, Enrico Fermi, Wolfgang Pauli, Niels Bohr, James Franck, Werner Heisenberg, Lise Meitner, Otto Hahn, and many others. The free exchange of information and the scientific reunions such as the Solvay Conferences were a result of the fruitful collaboration between the universities of the time. In Europe, in the first decades of the 20th century, there were several major research centers, such as Cambridge-Cavendish, Manchester, Göttingen, Berlin, Rome, Copenhagen, Leiden. Each of them benefited from the presence of a "guru" like the ones mentioned above, who nurtured a circle of young, gifted physicists entirely devoted to research work. Unfortunately, the ties between scientists, many of them Nobel laureates, as well as the free exchange of ideas and opinions in scientific journals or at various international congresses had to cease when the Nazis came to power. The place of open talks and friendly exchanges ...

SQL Easy by Kalman Toth 2.1 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Learn an easy introduction into SQL. Relational database design teach-by-practical-diagrams-&-examples book for developers, programmers, systems analysts and project managers who are new to relational database and client/server technologies. Also for database developers, database designers and database administrators (DBA), who know some database design, and who wish to refresh & expand their RDBMS design technology horizons. Familiarity with at least one computer programming language, Windows file system & Excel is assumed. Since the book is career advancement oriented, it has a number of 3NF database design examples with metadata explanations along with practical SQL queries (over 800 SELECT queries) and T-SQL scripts, plenty to learn indeed. Great emphasis is placed on explaining the FOREIGN KEY - PRIMARY KEY constraints among tables, the connections which make the collection of individual tables a database. The database diagrams and queries are based on historic and current SQL Server sample databases: pubs (PRIMARY KEYs 9, FOREIGN KEYs 10) , Northwind (PRIMARY KEYs 13, FOREIGN KEYs 13) and the latest AdventureWorks series. Among them: AdventureWorks, AdventureWorks2008, AdventureWorks2012 (PRIMARY KEYs 71, FOREIGN KEYs 90), & AdventureWorksDW2012 (PRIMARY KEYs 27, FOREIGN KEYs 44). The last one is a data warehouse database which is the basis for multi-dimensional OLAP cubes. The book teaches through vivid database diagrams and T-SQL queries how to think in terms of sets at a very high level, focusing on set-based operations instead of loops like in procedural programming languages. In addition to quick learning , the best way to master relational database design & T-SQL programming is to type the query in your own SQL Server Management Studio Query Editor, test it, examine it, change it and study it. Wouldn't it be easier just to copy & paste it? It would, but the learning value would diminish rapidly. You need to feel relational database design and the SQL ...

The Annals of Petronius Jablonski: An Odyssey of Historic Proportions and Priceless Treasure of Philosophy by Petronius Jablonski (Chandelier Press) 3.1 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified 9 hours ago

When his classic Pontiac is abducted by a deity who lives in the depths of Lake Michigan, Petronius Jablonski is offered Enlightenment in compensation. To obtain it he must decipher the coded features of an odyssey. He neglects to share these minor details with his longsuffering girlfriend, Sandy, who accompanies him. Home-schooled by an eccentric father, Petronius holds the modern world in contempt, the demise of polytheism and eighteenth century English in general, the plague of democracy and "internets" in particular. Despairing of his ability to understand the journey and rarely paying attention, he engages the Reader's assistance. His propensity for digressions complicates the search for a solution while making a mockery of first person narration. He anticipates absurd questions and adds chapters in response, he accuses the Reader of being smitten with Sandy and makes her less attractive, and he revolutionizes Philosophy by superseding Occam's overrated Razor and Plato's much-ballyhooed Cave with the paradigm-shattering contributions of Petronius' Shovel, Petronius' Blender, Schadenfreude Before-the-Fact, Petronius' Garage, and Petronius' Wheelbarrow. As he subjects the Reader to increasingly demanding prerequisites it becomes clear he is wandering the remorseless hinterland between genius and madness, which raises questions about the accuracy of his chronicle. Sandy's terrified warning that he's behaving like his tragic father elicits rage: "What Cato did, and Addison approved, cannot be wrong." But is Petronius a victim of ancestral fate or wisdom? What if Truth is poison? Perhaps a 1969 Bonneville is more precious than "enlightenment."

The Curtain - A Novel by Patrick Ord (Henry Maddox Publishing) 4.4 Stars (305 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

THE CURTAIN - A NOVEL SYNOPSIS: Have you met Henry Maddox? He knows you -- not personally of course... he really only knows your data. But from that data he actually may know you better than you think you know yourself. Henry knows where you've been and what you've bought. He knows all of your friends. Henry not only knows your behaviors, he understands your tendencies. And from those tendencies, he can predict what you're going to do before you've actually done it. Who is Henry Maddox? He is a 21st century marketing consultant and he specializes in highly personal and irresistibly persuasive advertising. Henry's strategies combine modern data mining (Big Data) techniques with other advanced and controversial marketing practices (Market Fragmentation, Cross Promotion, and Conglomerate Propagandizing) to the point where consumers don't even know they are being sold. Businesses love Henry because he not only moves product, he actually controls their customers. But when Henry is forced to face how his techniques affect real people, he realizes he has inadvertently given corporations the power to destroy society for their own ends. THE CURTAIN explores the effect that increasingly sophisticated marketing techniques have on communities, families, and individuals. In an age of digital distractions, who remembers the transcendent morality that has allowed past civilizations to prosper? When corporations have the influence and motive to define people by what they consume, are we as individuals losing the substance of who we really are? THE CURTAIN is entertaining, fun, thought provoking, educational, and frightening. Ord's storytelling is brilliant and his research extraordinary. THE CURTAIN is a must read for anyone that watches television or movies, listens to the radio, accesses the internet, logs into social media, has a smart phone, participates in loyalty card programs, or uses GPS technology. In short, THE CURTAIN is for everyone.

High-Performance Modelling and Simulation for Big Data Applications: Selected Results of the COST Action IC1406 cHiPSet (Theoretical Computer Science ... by Horacio González-Vélez (Springer) 3.8 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

This open access book was prepared as a Final Publication of the COST Action IC1406 "High-Performance Modelling and Simulation for Big Data Applications (cHiPSet)" project. Long considered important pillars of the scientific method, Modelling and Simulation have evolved from traditional discrete numerical methods to complex data-intensive continuous analytical optimisations. Resolution, scale, and accuracy have become essential to predict and analyse natural and complex systems in science and engineering. When their level of abstraction raises to have a better discernment of the domain at hand, their representation gets increasingly demanding for computational and data resources. On the other hand, High Performance Computing typically entails the effective use of parallel and distributed processing units coupled with efficient storage, communication and visualisation systems to underpin complex data-intensive applications in distinct scientific and technical domains. It is then arguably required to have a seamless interaction of High Performance Computing with Modelling and Simulation in order to store, compute, analyse, and visualise large data sets in science and engineering. Funded by the European Commission, cHiPSet has provided a dynamic trans-European forum for their members and distinguished guests to openly discuss novel perspectives and topics of interests for these two communities. This cHiPSet compendium presents a set of selected case studies related to healthcare, biological data, computational advertising, multimedia, finance, bioinformatics, and telecommunications.

Postcolonialism Cross-Examined: Multidirectional Perspectives on Imperial and Colonial Pasts and the Neocolonial Present (Routledge Philosophers in ... by Monika Albrecht (Routledge) 4.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 8 hours ago

Taking a strikingly interdisciplinary and global approach, Postcolonialism Cross-Examined reflects on the current status of postcolonial studies and attempts to break through traditional boundaries, creating a truly comparative and genuinely global phenomenon. Drawing together the field of mainstream postcolonial studies with post-Soviet postcolonial studies and studies of the late Ottoman Empire, the contributors in this volume question many of the concepts and assumptions we have become accustomed to in postcolonial studies, creating a fresh new version of the field. The volume calls the merits of the field into question, investigating how postcolonial studies may have perpetuated and normalized colonialism as an issue exclusive to Western colonial and imperial powers. The volume is the first to open a dialogue between three different areas of postcolonial scholarship that previously developed independently from one another: ? the wide field of postcolonial studies working on European colonialism, ? the growing field of post-Soviet postcolonial/post-imperial studies, ? the still fledgling field of post-Ottoman postcolonial/post-imperial studies, supported by sideways glances at the multidirectional conditions of interaction in East Africa and the East and West Indies. Postcolonialism Cross-Examined looks at topics such as humanism, nationalism, multiculturalism, nostalgia, and the Anthropocene in order to piece together a new, broader vision for postcolonial studies in the twenty-first century. By including territories other than those covered by the postcolonial mainstream, the book strives to reframe the "postcolonial" as a genuinely global phenomenon and develop multidirectional postcolonial perspectives.

Automated Machine Learning: Methods, Systems, Challenges (The Springer Series on Challenges in Machine Learning) by Frank Hutter (Springer) 4.5 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 8 hours ago

This open access book presents the first comprehensive overview of general methods in Automated Machine Learning (AutoML), collects descriptions of existing systems based on these methods, and discusses the first series of international challenges of AutoML systems. The recent success of commercial ML applications and the rapid growth of the field has created a high demand for off-the-shelf ML methods that can be used easily and without expert knowledge. However, many of the recent machine learning successes crucially rely on human experts, who manually select appropriate ML architectures (deep learning architectures or more traditional ML workflows) and their hyperparameters. To overcome this problem, the field of AutoML targets a progressive automation of machine learning, based on principles from optimization and machine learning itself. This book serves as a point of entry into this quickly-developing field for researchers and advanced students alike, as well as providing a reference for practitioners aiming to use AutoML in their work.

Men, Women & Manners in Colonial Times by Sydney George Fisher (Skyhorse) 4.2 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

“In travelling from Massachusetts to the Carolinas one passed through communities of such distinct individuality that they were almost like different nations," writes author Sidney George Fisher in his preface to Men, Women & Manners in Colonial Times, in which he presented the history and culture of colonial America to his Gilded Age contemporaries, who he felt had lost an appreciation of the fascinating circumstances that created the Founding Fathers and the Revolution. In the almost two hundred years of colonial life preceding the Revolution, the colonies displayed a remarkable variety, from their religion, politics, and countries of origin, to their dress, lifestyles, and character. Fisher cites primary documents such as colonial newspapers and the diaries of common men and women as well as famous political figures. He addresses the credibility of legends of our forefathers still told today (George Washington “was an extremely sociable man, and he could not have lived in Virginia and been otherwise") and the riveting colonial folklore lost to the ages (for instance, “John Randolph, of Virginia, who, seeing a drove of mules passing through Washington on their way to the South, said to Marcy, of Connecticut, ‘There go some of your constituents.' ‘Yes,' said Marcy, ‘going to Virginia to teach school.' "). Discover colonial architecture, illustrated here with photogravures, and colonial pastimes, including the favorites of George Washington and much of colonial Virginia: card playing and foxhunting. Learn the outstanding literary tradition of Massachusetts, the regularity of fighting off bears in New Hampshire, the popularity of horseracing in Maryland, Blackbeard's headquarters in North Carolina, the women who ran the South Carolina plantations, the cleanliness of the New York Dutch as they contemplated “their comfort and prosperity while they smoked their pipes... willing that the rest of the world would enjoy the same pleasure."
